Alan Shearer has revealed the full extent of his injuries following a biking accident in Portugal on Monday.
The Premier League all-time top goalscorer fell off his bike while holidaying in Quinta do Lago, Portugal, and initially posted a picture of a gruesome cut on his hand on Instagram.
‘Ouch! Bit of a fall off the bike this morning! Waiting for results of X-rays,’ he wrote on Instagram.
But it appears the former Newcastle talisman was not relaying a true representation of the seriousness of the incident.
Shearer has now received his X-ray results and confirmed on twitter he suffered ‘a little fracture’.
The 47-year-old was always tough and resilient back in his playing days and it seems nothing has changed.
Despite him downplaying his injuries they were severe enough to warrant a cast as a picture showed on Twitter.
It comes just a day after Shearer welcomed Wayne Rooney into the Premier League 200 goals club to which he previously was the only member.
He still remains the record holder as the Premier League’s top goalscorer by a large margin.
Shearer scored 260 Premier League goals spanning over an 18-year career where he lead the line for Southampton, Blackburn and Newcastle.
